VIVE LE 14 JUILLET ! VIVE LA FRANCE !!!
GILLES ROMEY' S
Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

"There are people of spirit and there are people of passion but much less common that one might think. Rarer still are the people of passion and spirit. But rarest of all is a passionate spirit."
-- Martin Buber
Sophi, I'm also enjoying roses today: Rose Pivoine from Nicolaï. A nice hot weather scent.
I'm in Mitsouko today.

A little Yvresse is called for je pense!
A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.
Good morning all and Happy Bastille day for those celebratingToday I'm off to meet a friend over some coffee. she's also one of the few friends that also apreciate niche perfumes and scents in general. Looking forward to get out of the apartment a bit,since I tend to think too much when I'm here. A good thing my brother and sister also are here for the holiday! Sotd is Dzing! No real summer heat here, just rain, so I can still wear my spicy scents without any problems of cloyingness
Testing (again) YSL Elle today. Had to wear something French, mais oui?
Equistrius - Parfum d'Empire
Wishlist is pointless.
Vive la France!!!
Jo Malone Vanilla & Anise
Notes: bergamot, neroli, wild fennel flower, star anise, oleander, tuberose, frangipani, purple vanilla orchid, clove, white amber, vetiver, vanilla bourbon absolute, tonka bean
Despite that rather hearty-sounding note listing, this is a sheer, almost watery fragrance, with transparent florals and a non-foody vanilla. I love anise in fragrances and can pick out its refreshing character here, yet it is subtle and well-blended. Very soothing and pretty scent.
Take care, everyone!

Happy Bastille Day to a culture that embraces the finer things in life: food, wine, FRAGRANCE and a joie de vivre attitude!!!
Today, I'm continuing to wear a french beauty, L'Artisan's Dzing!

I'm sampling some vintage Caron Infini pdt this morning (thanks L! ). I can't smell much...I'm waiting for my skin to warm it up so I can begin to get what it's all about.
Have a good day, all!

Après La Mousson. Well, it rained a little yesterday. Not exactly a monsoon, but any excuse!
Out here we are running for the wide open spaces, the road-smell after the rain.
Sharing the house of Hermès with Roberto and Petra Ichor today, I'm in the luxurious Parfum d'Hermès.
Happy Bastille Day ~ Viva La France!
Y'all have a wonderful day!

The Elle did not work...turned sour on my skin after a wonderful 30 minutes. It's been scrubbed off and I've got on a single spritz of Bois de Paradis.
Yardley English Rose today.
Rainy day here. We've been needing the rain, so it's all good.
Habit Rouge (vintage Eau de Toilette) + Habit Rouge vintage deodorant by Guerlain
Le Grand Duc, I totally adore your pict.
I'm in the divine Havana today.
Happy Bastille Day to our french Basenoters !
Scent of the morning is Joy !
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
Bois de Paradis from Delrae today.
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, which I have not worn in, oh, seemingly forever...for the going-to-be hot and darned humid (heat index @110 F!!!) day.
I am sampling Jean Patou's Enjoy, so I suppose I'm sort of scent sisters with Mimi Gardenia.
Top: cassis, banana accord, pear, natural bergamot, natural orange, mandarin
Middle: natural Bulgarian rose oil, natural Turkish rose absolute, natural Indian jasmine absolute, natural Indian cardamom, hedione
Base: natural patchouli, vanilla, amber, musk
Paco Rabanne Calandre
Happy Bastille Day! Think I'll join petrucciji in Etat Libre d'Orange Jasmin et Cigarette!
(Tested DSH's Nouveau Gardenia this morning. After a first blast reminiscent of superglue, it settled into a rather realistic gardenia. Will test again, as longevity didn't seem too good--but I often have that problem, in the morning especially.)
Sampling Matin Calin by CSP and guess what: The reviews are right - it DOES smell like baby vomit. Blech.
